Contextural Contexts Walk for SoilFood Fete

29th July 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Contextural Contexts Walk to SoilFood Fete

Meet 10/10.30am at Textural Contexts Exhibition, at the CORNER Gallery, 117 New Cross Road, London SE14 5DJ – starting with a short guided tour of exhibition and a textual contextual walk from New Cross to Peckham Rye that follows a green pathway toward the common. Led by curator artist Jo McCormick, with support of InspiralLondon associate artists. This walk will explore some of the green open spaces that lie hidden beyond the main thoroughfare to Peckham Rye. Stopping specially at Besson Street Gardens where volunteers will welcome us to the garden, introducing urban ecology and gardening just behind the main road. Please come prepared for a picnic on the Common if you wish to enjoy the soilfood of Peckham.



TEXTURAL CONTEXTS exhibition explores the concept of texture through examinations of landscape – mapping, pattern, domestic architecture, nature and the human form. Bringing together a diverse mix of artists who each explore the aesthetics of texture within their work in a unique way, this exhibition merges the work of 20 artists to create an immersive installation. The theme of textural resonance is explored through different genres and artistic mediums including drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, abstraction, text based work, puppetry, film, installation, figurative expressionism and still life. Themes include the climate crisis, the nature of and contextural concepts surrounding the notion of home, the human figure, mapping the landscape and the visceral and textural qualities of stillness and physical movement.

Transport: From New Cross/New Cross Station you can take buses 53 or 453 to near bottom of New Cross Road by Corner Cafe  or equally buses to junction New Cross Road/Old Kent Road from Queens Road Peckham Station (36, 171, 177, 436, P13). Despite the train disruptions the Overground to New Cross Gate runs and it is just 5 minutes walk to the Corner Gallery.

SoilFood is part of InspiralLondon’s project to explore and share in an ongoing on the ground mapping of the Metropole London. in encouraging everyone to walk the 350 mile spiral trail we offer a simple shared space in walking together and apart:  for experiencing, mapping and dwelling in our city; particularly in thinking of what lies hidden, unrecognised, this diverse life beneath our feet as we walk the trail together.
